Introduction: Oat Bran Muffins

I know what you're thinking.....bran muffins are only for old people! Think again. My entire family loves/eats these muffins. They are moist and delicious but not overly sweet. Perfect for breakfast!

I have worked hard to perfect a recipe that I love and this is my 'perfect' bran muffin recipe:

Oat Bran Muffins
1 c. milk
1 1/2 c. oat bran
1/3 c. olive oil
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. agave nectar
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. all-purpose flour (unbleached)
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small mixing bowl combine milk and oat bran. Set aside to soak.

Meanwhile, in another small mixing bowl, combine oil, egg, vanilla, brown sugar, and agave nectar. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl sift together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in wet ingredients and stir to combine. Add in oat bran mixture stirring to incorporate well.

Line a 12 whole muffin tin with liners and fill each evenly - approximately 3/4 full.

Bake for 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted come out clean.

I have to say that this is the best bran muffin recipe that I have tried!! Thank you so much! I did make a few of my own additions, I substituted coconut oil for olive, loved the slight coconut flavor, added flaxseed meal, 1/4 cup finely ground walnuts and topped with mini dark chocolate chips. They come out just perfect!! A keeper for sure!
